| || | How to quarantine new fish?
I have never quarantined any fish before, so I am not sure about the details of what is involved. After reading a few things on the importance of quarantine, I am going to make sure I do it with all and any new fish I bring home. I am planning on getting a Gold Algae Eater in the next few days for my planted tank.
How long is the quarantine period?
Do I add anything to the quarantine tank, such as medicines, to make sure any hidden illnesses are treated?
Does it need substrate?
What size tank is recommended for a quarantine?
And lastly, I will someday be getting some large cichlids for my 125 in the future, is there are different kind of quarantine process for a cichlid?
